Oxnead Hall Wedding Videographer

Chris & Jo - adam cash photography - LR (309 of 547)

Oxnead Hall in Norfolk is beautiful and it is where Jo and Chris decided to hold the Wedding in September 2018.

Oxnead Hall estate is nestled in the glorious countryside of north Norfolk with a magnificent Tudor hall and beautifully renovated great barn with acres of stunning gardens.

2 years ago I filmed the Wedding of Jo’s Maid of Honour and older Sister Rachel and so I knew the family well.

The original plan was to have an outdoor ceremony by the waterside but the weather was against them and at the last minute everything was moved indoors, but as you can see from the photos and video we did manage to get outside for the drinks reception.

The staff at Oxnead Hall are always terrific and look after everything so well and the Speeches and evening reception was perfect.


Please watch the Teaser Trailer and take a look at some of Adam Cash Photography’s photos

Destination Wedding Videographer – Special Offer

So, you’re thinking of getting married abroad?! That’s Great News !

So why take a UK based Wedding Videographer with you?

One of the great advantages of bringing a UK wedding Videographer along, is that you can meet up somewhere in the UK before the day and have a chat over coffee and talk about your plans.

Then there is the added bonus of knowing that we probably speak the same language, which means you can tell me exactly what you’re looking for and know that I understand what you mean.

Whether you’re getting married at a chic Hotel in Central London, a Mountain top or a Sunny Destination, I’ve experienced them all and will happily join you.

When working abroad, I’ll turn up a few days early in case of flight delays and to get some of those scene setting establishing shots.


So if you like my style of Wedding films, and you would like someone along who wants to be a part of your Destination wedding as much as you do, rather than booking someone abroad, who you don’t know very much about…..then it’s a no brainer.

 Maybe you fell in love with a UK based wedding videographer, and worry their travel rates might be too expensive?

Well I love to travel and quite often I will not add the expense of flights and accommodation to my prices

Location scouting in Malta

Here I am in Malta scouting locations


So what happens if I book me as your Destination Wedding Videographer?

Booking me as your destination wedding videographer is just as easy as booking me for a UK Wedding.

You get the same package – but with the added fun of travelling abroad and the fact that I am available before and after the big day.

Alternatively, if you’re already living abroad and looking to book me as your destination wedding videographer, we can Skype

A Hengrave Hall Wedding Film


 Hengrave hall always looks fantastic in Spring and in 2018 I was lucky enough to film three Weddings at this terrific Wedding venue in April and May.

All three couples held their ceremony in St. John Lateran church in the grounds of Hengrave hall.

Three Great Suffolk Weddings

These three short Wedding Trailers epitomise all that is great about Country house weddings, mixing traditional  and new ideas, with typical British weather, rain and sunshine.

 It can be quite a challenge to capture so many aspects of a Country house wedding and all the wedding details and then fit them all into a short Wedding film.



At the end of April I filmed the Wedding of Sarah and Kyle, we had a mixture of weather but that didn’t stop this lovely couple from making the most of their day.

At the beginning of May Victoria and Michael were married at St. John Lateran church.

It was really great to work alongside Martin Beard photography again.

Another early May Wedding was that of Jade and Ross who celebrated their day in glorious sunshine, and once again Martin was their photographer.

How to Make the Best Wedding Film


1) Getting ready.

Getting ready

No doubt listening to music in the background whilst you get ready is a good idea. At certain times we might ask for the music to be turned off though…….because we want to capture the sounds of  a champagne cork popping or the Bride or Groom reading a card out loud. If you are giving out gifts to the Bridal party and you want it to be part of your film then make sure we are in the room when this happens. Another big thing to consider is the lighting in the room where you are getting ready, natural light is always our favourite and will make you look your best on the video, however sometimes make-up artists will want to put the lights on to make it easier for them to work, maybe turn the lights off  occasionally to allow us to capture you in some natural light.

2) Ask us to capture the Groom getting ready too.

Screen Shot 2018-04-25 at 16.00.24

It’s not all about the Girls. Some of the best story building shots are captured whilst the Groom and the boys are getting ready. We like to get shots of the guys with ties, cufflinks and buttonholes, it doesn’t take long to get those shots and you will definitely see how important they are.

3) Your Ceremony Vows

Screen Shot 2018-04-25 at 16.04.06

We will position microphones around the Church or Ceremony room to capture the best audio from your vows, very small lapel microphones on the Grooms jacket can produce outstanding quality. Personally written vows are a favourite of ours. It’s always a great way to tell part of ‘your’ story.

4) Readings


Screen Shot 2018-04-25 at 16.13.41.png

Readings can make great soundbites for your Feature film too so we will place audio devices strategically to capture the best sound from your readers.

5) Confetti

Confetti 2

If you want one of those stunning slow motion confetti shots that you have seen then you want to have that confetti that hangs in the air longer, some venues and churches will ask you to use certain types of confetti like lavender or dried petals. If that is all you are allowed then so be it, it will still be a great shot

6) The Speeches – should you use the Venues P.A.?

Screen Shot 2018-04-25 at 16.15.54.png

If you can be heard by your guests without using the P.A. microphone, then we recommend that you don’t use it.

Not using the P.A. microphone during the speeches ensures that our microphones capture the audio in a natural way, which means it sounds better in the audio that we use in your wedding film. Of course if you’re in a large reception room and your guests are too far away from the top table then a P.A. microphone will be needed and we might be able to get a direct audio feed from the P.A. or use different recording devices to ensure the best possible sound.

7) Getting a good view during the Ceremony and Speeches.

Screen Shot 2018-04-25 at 16.17.52.png

Flowers look great in the Ceremony room and Reception, we might need to reposition larger floral displays during the Speeches to ensure we have a clear view of those important people but we will always check with you first. If you are giving out flowers as gifts to anyone on the top table it is also a good idea to make sure they don’t block the cameras view at that point.

Round Top tables make it difficult to capture everyones faces and get the best ‘reaction’ shots during the Speeches

8) The First dance.

Screen Shot 2018-04-25 at 16.25.16.png


A high percentage of couples will shuffle around the dance floor during their First dance. That’s fine if you aren’t naturally gifted with those killer dance moves then we can still get some fantastic shots at this point. If you are planning on doing a dance routine, please let us know in advance so that we can position different cameras with wider angled lenses on to make sure we get a variety of shots.

9) The Golden Hour and Sunset shots

Later in the day you might be tired, or feeling like it’s time to party after your meal.

Sometimes your Photographer and Videographer will see a great looking sunset, if we do, we will always ask you if you want to come outside for a quick 5 minutes extra to capture something special.

10) Fireworks or Sparklers, maybe both !!!

Always looks great on film and photos
